Applications Open For 2018 AMA Indigenous Medical Scholarship
Applications are now open for the 2018 AMA Indigenous Medical Scholarship, a program that has supported Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to study medicine since 1994.
The successful applicant will receive $10,000 each year for the duration of their course.
AMA President, Dr Michael Gannon, said today that there are fewer than 300 doctors working in Australia who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander – representing 0.3 per cent of the workforce – and only 286 Indigenous medical students enrolled across the nation.
